The RRG

MONITORING SITE FOR THE REGULATORY REFERENCE GUIDE

Welcome to the online Regulatory Reference Guide (RRG). It offers you the opportunity to search, sort and consult the rules impacting the recreational marine. The ICOMIA Secretariat invites all MIAs to check and update their sections frequently. We are sure that you will appreciate this very informative tool.

Please note: Currently, due to our recent website transition, the RRG is can not be edited by our members. MIAs will be informed as soon as it is possible to make updates. Before then, if you would like to update your country’s section, you can email your changes to hazel@icomia.com
